Children’s television stars will entertain young visitors at the new Chorley Flower Show.

Chorley Council will have gardening and horticultural entertainment at Astley Park in Chorley on Saturday, August 1 and Sunday, August 2 and the award-winning display from this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show will be unveiled.

“If you enjoy your gardening and want to come along to get some tips or buy some new plants and products then you can do that while keeping the children entertained too.”

And organisers have now announced that children will be kept busy too.

On August 1, Fifi and Bumble from Fifi And The Flowertots will be appearing in their Rock With The Tots mini show throughout the day, and on August 2, CBeebies’ star Alex Winters and children’s musician Mr Yipadee will host a pirates and princesses party.

There will also be a surprise visit from everyone’s favourite snow princess.

Coun Alistair Bradley, council leader, said: “The new flower show is focussed on the gardening and horticultural entertainment but we know there are a lot of families in and around Chorley who will want to attend too.

“If you enjoy your gardening and want to come along to get some tips or buy some new plants and products then you can do that while keeping the children entertained too.

“We will have a main stage with performances throughout the day and there will be a vintage fair with a 50ft helter-skelter - it looks fun and don’t worry, adults will be allowed to have a go too.”

Tickets for the show cost £4 for adults, £2 for children and £10 for a family ticket, available at chorley.gov.uk. They are also on sale at the council offices on Union Street, Chorley; Malcolm’s Musicland, Chapel Street, Chorley; Café Ambio at Astley Park, and Botany Bay.
